Android 2.1 Samsung M100S hitting Korea in March

Samsung's latest AMOLED smartphone has broken cover, the new SHW-M100S, and like the Google Nexus One it's running Android 2.1.  The M100S has a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen, WiFi b/g/n, T-DMB TV tuner and a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording; it's apparently set to arrive on South Korea's SK Telecom network next month.

Other specs include GPS and DivX playback, a 3.5mm headphone socket and - unfortunately - Samsung's own TouchWiz UI.  They've also added a social networking app, though that's not fully detailed, and the M100S will get access both to the regular Android Market and SK Telecom's own T Store.

No news on pricing for the phone, nor whether it might make it over to the US or Europe.  We won't argue with more Android 2.1 devices - even if we do have to suffer through TouchWiz on them - so our fingers are crossed for a broader launch.
